Sure, I've seen the geeklists for other, lesser candidates. I'm not exactly sure why I should vote for Hillary, or Ron Paul, or Obama, but everyone is making sure that they give me there Point-of-view, in convenient Geeklist form.

But you know there's a candidate we can all agree on. Someone who can peer into the future, over the obstacles that confront us all, and unite America.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the next President of the United States!

Winkles the Giraffe!

From an early age Winkles excelled at school. While not the smartest animal in his class, his good-natured clowning and happy demeanor made him a favorite with both students and teachers.

Early in high school, Winkles started volunteer work. Like all presidential candidates, he was for good stuff. Unlike most of the other candidates, he actually worked to achieve them, instead of just padding his resume and moving along.

Soon after he graduated from college, Winkles was discovered by political big-wig Solamar, who instantly recognized his potential and started grooming him.

After several years, Winkles had an immaculate coat of fur.

Armed with Presidential-calibre hair, Winkles was quickly elected to the city council.

After that, Winkles quickly climbed the ladder of political success. Detractors (and even someone as beloved as Winkles has a few detractors) have claimed that he has formed an unholy alliance with the snakes, to avoid the pitfalls that have ensnared so many.

The Truth is that Winkles, beloved of all the animals, is a sure-footed leader.

Soon after his election to the Senate, Winkles brokered a peace accord between the Lions and the Lambs. His Statesmanship was visible to the world!

In conclusion, Winkles is the choice for a new generation! Vote Winkles!

(Sponsored by the Winkles for President PAC).

Of course, every candidate needs endorsements. Lots of endorsements. (And money, too, but Winkles has eschewed large donations). So what's your reason to vote Winkles? What attracted you to him?

(Please post your endorsements!)
